How to perform Geotechnical Analysis of Soil using ABAQUS

The analysis of geotechnical problems is rather complex due to stress dependent material behavior and varying stiffness for loading and unloading conditions. Generally, soil has three different phases which are soil skeleton, pore air and pore water which often lead to complex interaction mechanism. Also, large deformation of soil continuum is observed under loading. Such complex behavior, boundary and material modelling can easily be found out and addressed by ABAQUS. This blog mainly focuses...

Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) Structure under Compression Load Conditions: ABAQUS/SIMULIA

Introduction The RCC structure displayed below is subjected to displacement under static conditions in ABAQUS GUI. The basic purpose of using RCC is to absorb stresses (specifically tensile stresses) that arise in the structure. From a structural engineering point of view, concrete is weak in tension, and therefore it is reinforced accordingly with suitable material. To overcome the crack development due to variation in temperature and stresses (shrinkage) also, reinforcement is used. RCC also...
